We have had some luck putting a North Face Tadpole tent on the bow of my friend's Wilard 7m. We pitch it fly-only and put the foot-end of the tent on the bow, five holes back on his grommets, the middle pole three holes back on the second set of grommets, and then ziptie the front to the inner grablines. It fits quite well and allows nice ventilation while affording shade. Haven't tried running on plane with it, and I don't think it would keep rain out, but for summertime camping it works quite well!
